Background and Discussion:

Harris County Public Health (HCPH) has been formally responding to the COVID-19 pandemic since March 2020. Among other services, HCPH is currently providing COVID-19 vaccinations, testing, and contact tracing. On March 9, 2021, Commissioners Court asked HCPH to review its contact tracing operations and related funding request.

 

 

Fiscal Impact:

The funds are requested from the Public Improvement Contingency (PIC) fund.  Contact tracing is not FEMA reimbursable. HCPH has a plan to right-size its contact tracing operations.
